You may also wish to visit Poems For Bulletin Boards. I enjoy the different WordPress.com themes, and presenting poems in different ways. Readers are welcome to use my poems in their lessons and art, with proper credit (my name and the blog).

Thank you,

Creative Note and Poems

As I reprint verses from the Psalms, and proofread the posts, I learn more about the language arts.

For example, yesterday’s post:

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

Psalm 126: 5

There is comfort, emotional and spiritual.

Then I also think, “What a beautiful sentence.”

I began this series on March 17, 2020. This morning we reached Psalm 30.
